If you open the same folder again and
again or if you open the same file very frequently, you can use various tricks
to open them with just a click. So, don't save them on your Desktop anymore.
Here are the tips:
1. Right click the File Explorer icon
pinned to the Task bar and you will see a pop-up with your frequently opened
folders and files. You can also pin some of them for quicker access so that
they are not lost when others are getting listed in due course.
2. If you are running Windows 10, the
navigation pane also contains a Quick Access feature. Click this and you will
see the frequently opened folders and recently opened files. Even here you can
pin some of them for quicker access so that they don’t move away from the list
in due course.
3. If you have pinned the Word, Excel or
PowerPoint applications to the task bar then, there are jump-lists created for
the respective applications that will help you to open the files. (Folders are
not listed). Right click the respective icons on the task bar and you will see the recent files listed. Push-pinning some of the files listed will help here too.
4. If you are spending your whole day in
Outlook, you can create Shortcuts to your folders and files in Outlook in the
Shortcuts folder (7th from the Mails icon) also use Outlook to open
it for you.
Create a new Shortcut group in the Shortcuts folder on Outlook. Open the File
Explorer and drag the folder / file under the new Shortcut group.
